BlackICE Historical Immersion Mod

Description


We aim to bring Hearts of Iron 4 to an all new level, making your game experience more immersive, historical and challenging.
Black ICE completely overhauls most national focus trees, changes game mechanics, adds in tons of events, technologies, units and much more.
While playing ahistorical will work, Black ICE mainly aims at improving the plausible historical experience.



Current BICE version: v8.0.3- Checksum: 75fa
Supported HOI4 version: 1.13.6

Supported game language: English ONLY (other languages will produce errors!)
Highly Recommended: Get the Black ICE GFX Add-on here, which adds images to all events.
Make sure to ONLY use Black ICE + Black ICE Gfx, as any other loaded mod most likely will cause issues. Even purely cosmetic mods have been known to cause problems.



- New and improved national focus trees for all majors and most minor nations
- Hundreds of new techs to research, including country-specific armor, aircraft, and ships
- Completely revamped naval system. Customize your ship classes or rely on premade historical designs
- Air War with realistic losses and improved gameplay
- Dozens of new battalion and support unit types
- Extended laws and politics that allow you to fine-tune your strategy
- Immensely detailed, all-new production system, which provides a much more detailed approach to unit equipment
- Events and decisions to completely immerse you in the game and the history it follows
- Improved AI across the board to provide for a more unique challenge



We are proud of our amazing community! Your feedback, praise and constructive criticism drives the project forward, and we are very thankful for it!
Our main hub of activity is our Discord, which currently hosts 10000+ members. Ask questions, be in direct contact with the Devs and coordinate your next BICE Multiplayer game.

Of course a project of such scope does not come without bugs, and we are truly thankful for any messages that bring them to our attention, either here or in the Discord.
Please keep in mind that this is a project we are doing in our free time, so keep it civil. Nobody is forcing you to play the mod. (Although we think you should definitely be playing it!).

Alas, a lot of issues and bugs are out of our hands, as they are a result of un-moddable assets from Paradox.

Go here for the official Paradox troubleshooting in case your game doesn't load, or if it crashes.[support.paradoxplaza.com]



Black ICE has and is being worked on by a lot of dedicated people, and many countless hours have gone into it.

@Gone gone for 21 days, any new updates

Check the beta version, that gets updated a fair bit between versions, although can be unstable and unpolished
@wojciechgroblicki That is super easy to do mate, make a submod
@sancus This mod is for players who want more economy depth, maybe try hoi4 lite edition that takes out everything but moving units

Love that mod! Can I have a little favour: in the next update can you add actual pictures of Italian better known generals like: Vechiarelli, Rosi, Nasi, Rosi, Gambara, Navarini, etc. Now they have generic pictures, but even in Vanilla some of them have specific portraits. Thaks in advance and god speed!

Thank you very much:steamthumbsup:

Ignore the Yellow triangle warning. BICE <both versions> is fully compatible and indeed REQUIRES version 1.13.7 to run.
Galahard Feb 24 @ 5:02pm 
Hello, thank you so much for this great mod. I would like to ask, do you know how to get version 1.13.6? BICE requires it. There are several versions in the library, but the highest is 1.12. Game version is 1.13.7
Have a nice day,
George
